Unleash the full potential of your video content

The importance of video content in the digital age cannot be overstated. With the ever-growing number of video platforms and the increasing consumption of video content, it's crucial that your videos are easily discoverable and accessible. One proven method for improving video discoverability is search engine optimization (SEO). In this blog article, we'll show you how to realize the full potential of your video SEO using effective ChatGPT prompts and leveraging video transcripts.

The power of video transcripts

A video transcript is a written record of the spoken content of a video. The video transcript is your subtitle file that VIDEO.TAXI creates for you in SRT or VTT format. There are a host of benefits to using video transcripts beyond improving accessibility. They can improve user experience, increase dwell time, and maximize video SEO potential. By integrating transcripts into your video strategy, you can:

  • Make your content more accessible to search engines
  • Improve the indexing of your videos
  • Increase the reach of your videos
  • Inform users briefly and concisely about long content

Effective prompts for video SEO optimization

To get the most out of your video transcript, it's important to use the right prompts. Here are some effective prompts that will help you optimize the video SEO of your transcripts:

Identify relevant keywords

Prompt: "Analyze the video transcript and identify the most important keywords and phrases that are relevant to my target audience (XY)s."

Optimize the video description

Prompt: "Create an engaging and keyword-rich video description based on the transcript to make the video more attractive to search engines and users."

Create an optimized video title

Prompt: "Generate a creative and SEO-friendly video title using the most important keywords and topics from the transcript."

Create additional content around the video

Prompt: "Develop a blog post or infographic based on the video transcript to extend the video's reach and leverage additional SEO opportunities."


Effective use of video transcripts can greatly increase the potential of your video SEO. By using the above prompts, you can not only improve the findability and reach of your videos, but also create a better user experience for your viewers. By identifying relevant keywords, creating engaging video descriptions and titles, adding subtitles and closed captions, and developing additional content around the video, you will notice a significant difference in the performance of your videos in search engines.

Remember that video SEO optimization is a continuous process. Keep an eye on the performance of your videos and adjust your strategy accordingly to respond to changes in user behavior and search engine updates. By incorporating effective prompts and video transcripts into your video SEO strategy, you'll be well on your way to making your videos accessible to a wider audience and achieving long-term success in the digital age.
